Our “What Is KY Jelly and How to Use It” post was so popular we thought a detailed look at Astroglide would be a great follow-up. Let’s discuss everything you’ll need to know about Astroglide before you give it a try.
What is Astroglide?
Good question. Astroglide is a personal lubricant made by Biofilm, Inc. out of Vista, California. Astroglide makes a wide range of lubes used during sex. Their style of lubricants includes everything from liquid to gel to flavored and more.
How To Use Astroglide?
Another great question. Astroglide is a vaginal lubricant and is used like most other sex lubes. The product is applied in a variety of ways including direct application to the genitals, application via hand, or in some cases, the use of an applicator will do the trick.
Does Astroglide Cause Allergic Reactions, Rash, Yeast Infection, or Similar Problems?
Astroglide itself should not cause a yeast infection. While glycerin has been cited as a source of yeast infections, it’s simply not true. Glycerin can cause a yeast infection to get worse though due to high sugar content that feeds the yeast. If you’re prone to a yeast infection, the best option is to shop for glycerin and paraben free Astroglide.
Astroglide is not known to cause rashes and other allergic reactions. It does not contain fragrances and other ingredients that are common irritants. If you’re feeling any discomfort or irritation, discontinue use of the Astroglide product and see your physician.
What About Expiration Dates?
Astroglide does not have an “active ingredient” so it does not have an effective expiration date and can be used safely over long periods of time if necessary. Like any product, the quality of the lube could decrease over time so keep that in mind if you decide to buy in bulk.
What Types of Lubes Does Astroglide Make?
Here’s a list:
Astroglide Liquid is a water-based, slippery lubricant. It’s the best-selling lube by Astroglide and can be used safely with condoms and other latex condoms. Bedroom tested and doctor recommended for safe use during sex.
Astroglide Gel is another water-based, condom compatible lubricant. It’s designed to be thicker than the more popular liquid version.
